With the rise of the gig economy and the shareconomy, many people express their concerns about how they will stay afloat financially. They like the idea of full-time, permanent positions that offer steady paycheques, group pension plans, and benefits.
But as this article suggests, these new trends don’t have to be scary. It can be the doors to a world of opportunity. I, personally, like the idea of being able to better balance life with work, do meaningful work, telecommute, and now more than ever, this is possible. Technology and the internet mean we are always connected. The gig economy also means that we are going to have to keep learning and developing our skills.
The world of work most likely won’t revert back to what it was. We’re living in different times, where the jobs now, could be obsolete in a few short years. But this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. We have resources easily accessible at our fingertips that gives us the power to pursue the things we want, when we want.
What’s your next gig?
